Simple and Easy Exploding Card


Hi everyone,
It's Angela here with a brand new card tutorial. Today I explain you how to make an exploding card. Are you ready? So, let's get started!
Starting with a square piece of paper, there are a few folds you have to make, the first is to fold the two diagonals,

Third, fold in the middle, but on the other side of the paper.

Fold the crease made now on the opposite side, creating a triangle shape

Fold towards the middle the two extremities of the triangle

and fold the creases towards the inside.

Make the same with the triangle on the opposite side

You will end up with a final shape like this

The following step is not necessary, but I liked to cut a circle in the inside of the card.

Last, I glued  the folded card in the inside of the card made and I used a stripe of ribbon to keep the card closed.
